Another cool thing that's happening this year: two organizations are raising the bar on our PARK(ing) Day events. Come one, come all to the following events where Pittsburgh will celebrate another great day of PARK(ing)...

Kelly Strayhorn Theater After Party Extravaganza, 5PM – 7PM
Get your kicks en route to the Kelly Strayhorn Theater for the PARK(ing) Day After Party Extravaganza! Eat, drink, and play games with Obscure Games Pittsburgh outside and in the theater. If you feel the spirit move, then move with the sweet sound of music that fills the theater. Put the breaks on life and enjoy yourself and the company of others at KST!

Kelly Strayhorn Theater, 5941 Penn Ave, 15206 in East Liberty

Over the Bar (OTB) Bicycle Café Late Night Extravaganza, 7PM – 12AM
Join the folks at OTB and check out their Reduced, Reused and Recycled Bike-Friendly Pedestrian Park. The park will be interactive and fun, featuring creative installations such as bike racks made from recycled bicycle parts, interactive Bikerators (bicycle-powered generators) from Kova Enterprises, as well as several other recycled installations and a bicycle/pedestrian safety educational component. From 5 pm to 12 am, OTB will be offering the Bike Pittsburgh burger, The Bicycle Advocate, for $5 and East End Brewing’s Pedal Pale Ale for $3.
